I have sometimes wondered whether this cus tom partakes of the nature of a disease, or whether it is simply a fad, a practice which has grown to be considered "swell" in this part of the country. Certain it is that for two-thirdB of the newly-married couples, or for those whose wedding day is approaching, a sign of "Rooms and Board" has much the same attraction that a magnet has for a needle, or a Waldorf-Astoria crest for a monogram fiend. If the simple securing of a place to eat and Bleep be all that is desired, then this boarding house system is admirably fitted to supply the want: but when one considers the many advantages to be enjoyed in a private home, it is a wonder that boarding houses are not given over to the exclusive accommodation of bachelor maids and unmarried men. In a boarding house, particularly in a large one, a person rapidly loses his in dividuality; his horizon becomes nar rowed, and soon he finds his thoughts revolving around a very limited orbit of eating and drinking and Bleeping. The very furniture in a rented suite of rooms iB characterless, and resists all efforts at home-life arrangement by the most enthusiastic bride who ever pinned up a poster. Why should she plan and de vise schemes for rearranging her rooms, when they persist in looking the same in spite of all her efforts? ThuB many of her housewifely instincts lie dormant, and she is driven for entertainment to the shops, .the library ,and the concert halls, and she may even develop into a matinee fiend! The husband may find diversion dur ing the day at his place of business; but when be comes home at night he misses that freedom from restraint which can be secured only in a home of hiB own. The condition of the family purse may not warrant the hiring of a servant, and the young wife may not be an adept in the culinary art; but a beginning at housekeeping must naturally be made some time, and what time so propitious hb the Bret weeks of married life, when love will sweeten the most unsavory dish, and when the delightful table talk will make up for many defects in the cuisine? I am convinced that this forlorn and homeles condition of boarding is respon sible for much of the unbappiness of married life; it will eventually ruin the sweetest of tempers, and many a quar rel and even divorce might have been avoided in more congenial surroundings. Hurtful and Helpful Giving. "When I was trying hard to get through the state university on very little money," writee Mrs. Cynthia Westover Alden, the president-general of the International Sunshine society, in the Ladies' Home Journal for August, "one day an old-time friend looked me over, and taking out a ten dollar bill, handed it to me saying: 'You actually look as if you did not get half enough to eat. Take this money and straighten up a bit. Don't forget to pay it back to me when you can. I don't believe in giving money to anybody.' Now, I was not an object of charity, though I was in need of Sunshine. I put the bill away and cried as if my heart would break. After waiting some days I Bent the same ten dollars back, saying I was glad I could return it to her so soon. To this day I bear of her telling how she helped me financially when I was "hard up." "Another woman, that same week, asked me why I did not .take my meate at the restaurant where most of the students took theirs. I replied that it was a little too expensive for me. The next day I was called in by the proprie tor of the restaurant, and asked it I could find time to look over the books of the concern and verify the work done by some one else, aud if 1 would take the pay out in meal tickets. 1 thought it merely a bit of luck that had come in my way. But at the close of the terra the proprietor told me that my friend had paid for my meal tickets. Did the kindness offend me? 1 cried just aa hard as I had cried over the ten dollar bill, but it was a different sort of a cry." AS TO MUSICIANS AND HIRSUTE ADORNMENTS. Through the columns of a Pittsburg paper the world is informed that a young lady, a member of the Castle Square Opera Company, now playing there, is blessed by nature with 200 miles of golden hair. With mathematical ex actness ''the number of hairs to the square inch of head has been counted, and the hair is five feet in length, so it is estimated that if the silken strands were laid end to end two hundred miles would be measured." The value of this information is less ened by the failure of the writer to state whether there is a scientific reason for connecting the abundance of the young lady's hair with her musical proclivities. On this, point statistics are sadly needed. Everyone knows that pianists usually have long, fine, silky manee, inclined to curliness, and that the violinist, with an equal abundance of head covering, is commonly adorned with a chevelure of thick, coarse, straight locks. The in jurious effect on the hair of the playing of brass instruments is established, and the baldness of the trumpeter is a joke in every orchestra. But these scattered observations have never been subjected to proper scientific ecrutiny, and the Einger and his (or her) hair have been left almost entirely out of the question. It may be suggested thatlhe comic opera singer is chronically"baldand ihatltip interpreter of tragic roles in opera has abundant hair, usually coarse and grow ing low over the brow. But in the first case the baldness may be due to the funny man's humorous tendencies rath er than his singing, and in the latter some inquiry must be instituted into the habits of life of grand opera singers, so as to eliminate other factors from the problem. Then there is the question whether there is Borne scientific reason back of the convention which ordains that the bass shall wear a flowing beard, the baritone a closely trimmed Van Dyke at most, while the tenor is permitted noth ing more than the lightest of mous taches. But this is getting in too deep; the questions raised call for a new Teufelsdrockh, and a Philosophy of Hair. Concert-Goer.
